BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) — A Texas man will spend decades in prison for the 2019 shooting death of a Lincoln man in a Fairbury park.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that District Judge Rick Schreiner sentenced 26-year-old Jerry Gilbert of Odessa, Texas, to 45 to 60 years in the killing of Marc Jarrell.

Gilbert told the judge at his sentencing Tuesday that not a day passed that he doesn’t think about what he did to Jarrell and his family.

Gilbert pleaded guilty in October to second-degree murder and use of a firearm to commit a felony.
